STC and Alcatel-Lucent apply LTE technology to increase mobile broadband quality and speed

Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) today announced its selection by Saudi Telecom Company (STC), the leading service provider in

the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, to launch the first 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) wireless network in the country, bringing subscribers true

broadband services to their mobile devices.

The introduction of LTE technology will give STC’s mobile broadband subscribers access to a huge number of data applications on their

smart phones, tablets and laptops.  The increased speeds and quality of experience will allow activities such as the download and transfer

of high definition video and real-time gaming, on the move.

As a key innovator, STC will be the first in the region to launch major commercial LTE services to cover 11 key cities in Saudi Arabia as

first phase to provide enhanced mobile broadband services using 4G LTE technology, with dramatic improvements anticipated in the speed and

quality of connections. Alcatel-Lucent was selected to support STC’s LTE network deployment in the Northern Region of the Kingdom,

following a successful trial of the technology. Alcatel-Lucent, through the ngConnect Program, is also helping STC build an ecosystem of

leading companies to provide content, applications and innovative services to meet needs of subscribers in Saudi Arabia.

Dr. Zeyad Al-Etaibi, CTO of STC Group said: “STC is committed to delivering innovative services to its subscribers and together with

Alcatel-Lucent we are confident we will enrich our customers’ lives by offering a variety of services for consumers and businesses. Our

customers will enjoy the benefits of 4G LTE through an enhanced mobile experience that is unmatched in the industry.”

Abdulrahman Al-Azzam, Country Senior Officer of Alcatel-Lucent in Saudi Arabia said: “This is a big win for Alcatel-Lucent in the Saudi

market and Alcatel-Lucent is committed to providing STC with the most advanced LTE solution addressing the need to scale and manage network

capacity to meet increasing bandwidth demands while delivering differentiated, revenue-generating services at a lower overall cost”.  He

also added: “this LTE deal with STC includes managed services of all sites Alcatel-Lucent will deploy”.
Ericsson: First taste of 4G likely in 2012

Thailand is set to experience a full pace of 3G network expansion, along with a few planned 4G pilot projects, in 2012, says the Swedish

telecom equipment maker Ericsson.

Tablet-based enterprise mobility solutions and cloud-based services are likely to become new lucrative business models for mobile

operators, giving them a new revenue stream in the mobile broadband era.

Bunyati Kirdniyom, head for communications and regulatory affairs of Ericsson Thailand, said major mobile operators were likely to focus on

3G infrastructure expansion next year to serve increasing demand for mobile internet, driven mainly by the proliferation of smartphones and


Thailand is likely to experience the initial long-term evolution (LTE) technology, known as 4G, next year, he said.

Operators running on LTE networks could provide voice over LTE service for smartphone users, enabling high-quality IP-based voice services.

Ericsson predicts that local mobile operators need to explore new business models to increase profitability.

Mr Bunyati said Ericsson expects embedded mobile broadband (EMB) to become a common feature in notebooks in 2012 after the country adopts

it as an optional feature for two years.

EMB enables a device to make broadband connection without being limited to areas within ranges of wireless hot spots.

Arun Bansal, Ericsson's head responsible for Southeast Asia and Oceania, said conventional business models relying on prices, speeds and

sales volumes would become less effective.

"In 2012, mobile operators are expected to adopt an innovative business approach common in the financial and airline sectors. The

strategies will involve loyalty, user preferences, service customisation and tailor-made applications for enterprise," he said.

Mr Bansal also said operators are expected to provide greater cloud service varieties to differentiate themselves from rivals. Mobile

payment via Near Field Communications technology would play a key role next year.

Collaboration between operators outside the telecom industry are likely to be seen in convergence services.

On-demand and over-the-top TV solutions would continue growing.
